    First a quote from Webmonkey's first look at the forthcoming Photoshop:



    and a link: http://www.webmonkey.com/blog/First_Look:_Photoshop_Creative_Suite_4_Is_Faster__More_Refined

    As I'm sure you all are, I'm personally thrilled about this. I'm looking forward to trying out "insta-panorama" on some basic landscape shots. And I dare say that this feature may replace most typical use of cloning in photo editing.



    What say you?

    now that is interseting - going my feeling here I suppose it detects which areas of the shot are out-of focus (ie softer) and which areas are the key interest of focus (sharper) and then adds the pixels into the softer areas
    Their example of removing a tourist sounds very interesting, though I think the clone tool will still be needed (looking at their beach example some areas of the sand appear to need a little work to look real)
    Looking at their example on their site - that of the beach - look at the cliffs in the background and you can see the texture is very definatly altered by the method - though its abilty to ignor the surfers is indeed very impressive.

    Yeah, Adobe demoed this feature a good 6 months before the release of CS3. I was really surprised when CS3 released without it. I had since written it off as not-to-be-included-ever but it's great to see they are going to include it in CS4! :thumbup:

    I remember seeing a demonstration of it on youtube or something...

    It looked pretty damn cool.

    I found a CD of CS2 at a garage sale for a couple of dollars, complete with original case, upgraded from CS2 to CS3 for peanuts. Another $199 is reasonable if there are a lot more than 1 new features coming (I am sure there are tons more, finding out what they are is an important factor).

    We'll see. For now I still say that I'm good.

    Yeah this came out of the depths of a PhD thesis in 06 and was then displayed at a Siggraph the year after I think, and there were some wonderful demonstrations which explained how it all worked.
